Did you know that outdated and unneeded medications are both a safety and environmental hazard? Expired or unused prescriptions and over-the-counter medications can result in accidental poisonings or overdoses. Improper disposal of medications, either by flushing them away or throwing them in the garbage, can present a threat to our water supplies.

A permanent prescription drop-box is located at the Happy Valley Police Department for safe disposal of unwanted or expired prescriptions and medications.

Happy Valley Community Policing Center
12915 SE King Road Happy Valley, OR 97086
(503) 760-0123

The City’s Youth Council also holds bi-annual Rx Turn-In events in conjunction with the nationwide effort led by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) for easy drive-by and drop-off of these items.
